Used to fit
This was a suprise hit for me. I ordered this on the basis of a recommendation here on Bratabase. I was very skeptical that this would work for me as I tend to not get on well with plunges and totally expected I would end up sending it back.
When I first tried it on I felt quite exposed and wondered if I should have ordered the next cupsize up - I did already go up a cup more than I would normally wear as I the general consensus seemed to be that this runs small in the cup. However I've twisted, turned and contorted and cannot see any spillover anywhere outside the cup even in extreme positions so I think the problem is just that I am not used to wearing a bra that is so open in the center of my chest - I tend to stick with balconettes that come up higher in the middle. I actually prefer the wires sitting lower at the center gore as the ones that come up a little higher always poke my breast on the larger side (I have very little space between them). While this is usually not painful I would prefer for it not to happen.
I'm not really big on the cleavage look but this gives a nice amount of cleavage without looking obscene. The band on this feels a bit tighter than the thrill me I already own (which I had to fasten on the tightest hook from day one) so I expect it should wear better long term. The icing on the cake is that this bra is *really* comfy. I can see this becoming a favourite and will probably occupy space in my underwear drawer for a long time to come. Definitely a keeper!
ETA: Having now worn the bra for a whole day I am now seeing that crease in the base of the cup that others have mentioned, however it is only happening on one side (the bigger one). So I think this is probably what others have suggested, orange in a glass caused by the cup being too shallow in the bottom. My boobs are relatively firm so the fact that this isn't happening on the smaller side seems to confirm the orange in a glass theory. It's still a keeper - the crease wasn't visible under my work uniform and this bra is way too comfy to give up.
